Famed for its profound Dravidian culture and lifestyle, the temples, beaches, heritage sites, local markets, festivals, and religious ceremonies

The endearing aroma of hot coffee, briskly moving women with their long braids decorated with jasmine garlands, thick moustached men in white, holding yellow cloth bags, the distant melody of Carnatic music, dissolving into the bee-buzz of mopeds and rick honks, film songs being played 24 hours from wayside stalls – this is Tamil Nadu. The land, known for its celebrated hospitality and zest for life.  Where even a smile at a passer-by will be greeted with a warm “Vanakkam”, the traditional Tamil way of greeting.

In Tamil Nadu, you will find legends and reality blending gracefully, like the warp and weft of a Kancheepuram silk brocade. The land is home to magnificent temples and temple architecture, art and craft, performing arts, places of historical and archaeological importance, exotic hill stations and beaches. A distinct cuisine delectably complements the versatility that is Tamil Nadu.
